Welcome to the Innovation Studies Lab led by Dr. Lindsey McGowen! The Innovation Studies Lab is dedicated to investigating the processes and outcomes of innovation. In particular, we conduct applied research with and program evaluation for team science-based research initiatives. Our projects typically focus on large, cross-disciplinary, multi-institutional research centers that involve collaborators from academia, industry, government, and other stakeholder groups all working together to address grand challenges of scientific and societal importance. On this page, you will find information about lab members, our funded projects, and publications.
